1259 : No Sadder Sight Than A Derelict Pub


Can there be a sadder sight in all the world than that of a derelict pub? Fallen statues of fallen leaders I can take. Crumbling abbeys amidst pastoral settings can have a special beauty all of their own. Demolished hovels giving way to new houses can give you hope for the future. But a derelict pub - it is enough to make you turn to drink.

That is sad. And I think it calls for another round at the nearest still-functioning pub. Here's to the Rose & Crown!

There were dozens of them on the Dock Road in Liverpool in the 80s. Only one survived, The Docker's Hook, but even that has since closed (and it only lasted longer due to the daily stripper).

So true. But I don't know why but there's always a silver lining feel for me with these charming old buildings.

I guess it is gone for good. I could see another kind of business moving in there but it really is a fixer upper.
